The Hot, the Loud and the Proud

The huge flower of the Golden Chalice vine seems to be loudly proclaiming the contenders for the title!
The yellow and red leaves of the Amaranthus are louder than its flowers.

The Queen's Tears Russelia is making a statement in the shade.


The flower of the bromeliad is slowly emerging, sheathed in red.



Inflorescences of the Pyramid Billbergia are springing up in surprising places inthe garden. To view more hot, loud and proud images of tropicals, please visit Noel's blog- A Plant Fanatic in Hawaii.
